Let's make a breakdown of the list of items which are necessary for starting a Barbing Saloon.

A shop: 

of course you cannot run a barber shop under the sun or by the shades of a tree. The basic requirement for getting into Barbing Saloon bussiness is that you get a shop where your customers can patronise and be at their comfort. You can choose to erect a building on a small portion of land for that purpose or still hire a shop.

A generator set.

In starting a barber business in Nigeria, it is important you have a generator set standing by so that you won't run out of electricity when there is blackout.
A generator set can go for 15 thousand naira and above as they are of different sizes.

Wall mirrors: 

the importance of a wall mirror especially when venturing into a bussiness like Barbing, can never be overemphasized.
Customers always want to look at the mirror to see what you are doing on their hair. Ordinarily if I walk into a barber shops and find out there is no mirror I won't dare pay for any services there, moreover the barber may not be a professional.

A portable wall mirror can be purchased at the rate of 8 thousand naira or less.

You also need minor items like hair brushes, combs of different sizes, sanitizers, clipper oil, clipper maintainance etc. All these can be gotten within the range of 3 to 5 thousand naira (5000).
